Mission QX-1 MKII (Walnut Pearl)
Compact size for flexible use
The QX-1 MKII’s neat, compact dimensions make it ideal for a wide range of applications. Its broad frequency response makes it the perfect partner for a mini system in a smaller room. It also works well at near-field listening – just the job for a high quality desktop system. With a wide range of other QX speakers available, the QX-1’s are also the ideal choice as effect speakers in a home cinema system.
Featuring Mission’s ‘ring dome’ tweeter design, these speakers offer the perfect balance of stunning musical detail with a smooth, low distortion output. Thanks to a twin cavity venting system, backpressure is reduced, meaning the treble response can ‘breathe’. Offering low resonance and the purest detail, the QX speakers are a class above at the top end.
Improved cone material for even more natural vocals
With an improved hybrid blend of soft pulp and acrylic fibre, the seam-free woofer is designed for effortless movement and maximum clarity. For the dynamic thrill you’d expect from Mission speakers, a clever DiaDrive, sub cone system transfers maximum transient impact directly from the motor system – meaning that the crack of a drum is crisp and instantaneous.
Mission have put much work into the QX-Series MKII to reduce distortion. Computer optimised modelling and laser interferometry make this MKII even better than the original. As well as the vented treble unit and DiaDrive woofer, a slot port system enhances airflow leaving the cabinet. Reduced pressure here enhances the low frequency response without introducing distortion.
Classic Mission geometry for seamless sound
The reverse geometry layout (tweeter below the woofer) is a classic Mission design signature that works as well today as it always has. By positioning the treble unit below the woofer, the length of soundwaves from each to your ears is equalised. Known as ‘time alignment’, this is the reason why this, and many other Mission speakers, sound so ‘together’ and up-beat.
Sleek design with aluminium top plate and choice of finishes
As well as looking sleek, the colour co-ordinated aluminium top plate enhances the cabinet’s rigidity – lowering distortion even further. Another cool detail is the comb-tooth woofer trim. This neatly hides the fixing bolts and contrasts with the speaker’s smooth good looks. Available in new Lux Black, Lux White and Walnut Pearl, there’s a finish to suit every room.
